SAN FRANCISCO – JUNE 9, 2015 – AppDynamics, a leading application intelligence company, today announced that it has been recognized by Docker as an Ecosystem Technology Partner (ETP) for monitoring. This designation indicates that the AppDynamics Docker Monitoring Extension has demonstrated working integration with the Docker platform via the Docker API, and is available to users and organizations that seek solutions to monitor their Dockerized distributed applications.
“Our business users are looking to make the application integration process more flexible, agile and portable,” said Scott Johnston, Docker’s senior vice president of product. “AppDynamics further empowers our users to optimize continuous application delivery with an advanced visualization tool to manage the end-to-end processes inside Docker containers.”
AppDynamics provides visibility into applications and business transactions made out of multiple smaller decoupled microservices deployed in a Docker environment using the AppDynamics Docker Monitoring Extension. This solution monitors and reports on various metrics, including the total number of containers, running containers, images, CPU usage, memory usage, network traffic and more.
Customers can correlate Docker metrics with the metrics from the applications running in the container, while leveraging all of the functionality of the AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform — including automatic dynamic baselining, alerting, analytics and more. The AppDynamics Docker Monitoring Extension also creates an out-of-the-box custom dashboard with key Docker metrics.
“With software-defined businesses increasingly adopting complex application architectures that incorporate microservices and Docker containerization, a visualization of the complete services path is critical,” said Jonah Kowall, AppDynamics vice president of market development and insights. “AppDynamics provides traceability from end-to-end for each interaction, from the user through all of the services calls, along with the infrastructure — and can now bring that complete visibility to Docker users.”
The AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform is a comprehensive solution enabling companies and government entities to maximize business and application performance. The platform is designed and architected to give business and government users the confidence that their business or organization is running at its best, to give IT the operational visibility and control they need, and to give end users the great experiences they’ve come to expect and demand.
